Holy Week local schedule

Apr 16, 2019

14 - 20 April
14 - 20 April

 

Greetings to our Christian staff and students celebrating Holy week. It is a time when Christians remember the last week of the earthly life of Jesus and is the most important time in the Christian calendar.  Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week and celebrates Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem riding on a donkey. Crowds of people greeted him, throwing palm branches on the road.  On Thursday, known as Maundy Thursday, Christians will remember the Last Supper and on Friday, known as Good Friday, the crucifixion of Jesus.
